Color overload ... almost!

I've woven the last sample that I have time to finish before the class later this week.  Now I'm hard at work on the last revision of the handout.  So much to do, so little time!

From bottom to top on this sample:  analogous with warm hues; analogous with cool hues; monochromatic using red-violet; complementary using blue-violet and yellow-orange; triad using secondary colors (green, orange, violet); and the top sample used the colors determined by the palette generator basing colors on my photo shown in the last post.  This is about 8" wide and 24" long.  10 epi of 12/9 cotton seine twine warp.  Four strand blends of 20/2 wool for weft.


  1. These are beautiful, Tommye! What great visuals for your lucky students!

  2. Fascinating. One more class/topic for my wish list of weaving exploration.

  3. Very interesting last picture. I've only touched on learning to weave but I plan additional classes in the not too distant future. Do yo u ever come to the San Francisco Bay Area to teach? I'd love to take a class from you....
